Friends, you are 9 Ingredients away from the perfect Vegan Chocolate Mousse Tart!

Now, before you raise an eyebrow at the words ‘9-ingredients’, let me assure you this dessert is as straightforward as they come. It’s a no-fuss, no-frills treat that will leave your taste buds happy as heck!

The Star ingredient is none other than Avocado! Yep, you read that right. This green superfood is not just for guacamole or smoothies.

The taste is undetectably masked by the deep flavors of chocolate and perfectly paired ingredients.

From pressing the crust into the pan, watching the mousse blend into a silky consistency, to adorning it with fresh berries. All the steps really offer their own sensory moment!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 8


  • Oven
  • 10” tart pan
  • rubber spatula
  • Food Processor


Grain-Free Chocolate Crust Ingredients

  • 2 cups extra fine almond flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup coconut butter or coconut oil softened
  • ¼ cup medjool dates pitted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1-3 tbsp water if needed

Chocolate Mousse Filling Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar-free vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or coconut butter softened
  • 5 ripe avocados peeled
  • 1 cup raw unsweetened cacao powder
  • cup plain unsweetened plant milk
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup maple syrup
  • berries of choice for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350. Add all ingredients for crust, except water, to a food processor. Blitz until well combined and crumbly. Add 1 tbsp water at a time and blitz until a dough is formed. Transfer to a 10” tart pan and use clean hands or a rubber spatula to press into an even layer. Prick with a fork many times and bake for 12 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
  • Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil or butter in a microwave safe dish. Microwave at 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring each time until melted. Give your food processor a quick rinse. Add in all the ingredients for the mousse, including the melted chocolate mixture, and mix on high until fluffy, smooth, thick and creamy. Stop to scrape the sides down as needed, and adjust to your desired sweetness level by adding more maple syrup if desired.
  • Pour the mousse into the prepared crust and use a rubber spatula to smooth out. Top with berries. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before enjoying, or overnight.
